Oxford Silver Pennies  :  From A. D. 925 A. D. 1272 (Classic Reprint) free pdf Excerpt from Oxford Silver Pennies: From A. D. 925 A. D. 1272

In these few pages I have attempted to describe all the Oxford silver pennies that are known to me, with a view to illustrating the general character of the local currency down to the end of the reign of Henry the Third, Not that our Oxford money was in any way remarkable. On the contrary, it merely stood side by side with the other provincial issues, helping to complete the national currency. For that reason it may seem to some of my readers that the attention here given to it is more than is necessary. But I think they will see that it is difficult to treat the subject at all if not fully, A few short lists of types and names, with references to works which many do not possess or have no time to consult, might have been sufficient, but they would have been meaningless to most members of the O. H. S., especially if there had been no illustrations. The Oxford mint is considered by some to be a rare one, and it was this fact that led me originally to take note of such pennies as occurred from time to time. The result shows the mint to have had a very much larger issue than was thought, and as no year seems to pass without fresh material coming to light, I use the word 'illustrate' advisedly. Probably most of the 'types' are represented here, but the book would never have appeared if it had been decided to delay it until all the different pennies of each type were included. We cannot tell, of course, what finality there may be in such a case, but the book is sufficient to illustrate the series, and as an attempt to do this somewhat fully I hope it will be regarded with leniency.

In reality the study of a local mint is not without interest. The history of Oxford before the Conquest happens to be dim, and this is one of many subjects to be pursued before we can form a general idea of the daily life of her burgesses in those early days.
